Because Keystone Engineering Inc. does business with the federal government, we are required to engage in affirmative action to hire and provide equal opportunity to certain categories of protected veterans, as defined below. We also are required to file annual reports with the government indicating the number of protected veterans hired each year and employed at the time of the report. This survey is designed to assist us in measuring the effectiveness of our efforts to recruit qualified protected veterans to our workforce and also to satisfy our annual reporting requirements. The completion of this form, however, is completely voluntary, and neither your answers to this survey nor your decision not to complete this survey, if that is your desire, will be held against you in any way either as an applicant or an employee. All applicants and employees are given the opportunity to complete this survey.
